What does it mean to walk by the Spirit? It means that‚ no matter where you are‚ you allow the Holy Spirit to lead you. To walk by the Spirit gives you life because you are allowing the Lord to have free reign in every moment of your life. Colossians 3:1-2 says‚ “Since‚ then‚ you have been raised with Christ‚ set your hearts on things above‚ where Christ is‚ seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above‚ not on earthly things.”
Setting your heart on things above frees you from focusing on daily problems or hardships. It allows you to walk in faith and hope because you are setting your heart toward God‚ who is bigger and greater than any earthly and temporary thing. How does one walk by the Spirit? It is by reading the Bible‚ praying‚ and daily spending time with the Lord that you draw closer to Him‚ and as you draw closer to Him‚ your spirit comes into alignment with His Spirit and you begin to hear His voice and become sensitive to where He’s leading.
Romans 8:14 says‚ “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God‚ these are sons of God.”
Be encouraged to seek the Lord daily because as you do‚ He will begin revealing Himself. Not only will He reveal Himself to you‚ but you will realize a sense of peace within your spirit as you go about your day because you will be grounded in truth and aligned with God’s Spirit.
